Here's a great way to lay someone off

Okay, all you CEOs, HR types, and managerial types out there, pay attention. Here's a great new way to lay somebody off or fire them. It's really cool.

Near the end of the workday, say around 4:30 p.m., send them an email saying "You're out." The closer to 5 p.m. you send the message, the better.

Cancel their email account sometime between 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. the next day.

This works best if they have no idea it's coming.

It's sneaky, it's clever, and if they complain, you can always ask them, "Well, why didn't you check your email between 4:30 and 5:00? Did you knock off early or something?"
